CONNECT

 

So many ways…

The church is more than the building, or a single hour of the week.  It’s a living organism of ministries and projects, serving together for one common goal.  Within these outlets, you’ll find the opportunities that fit your strengths, skills, and needs.

Small Groups at HCC

A key component of the ministry of Jesus was the making of disciples. Jesus taught the crowds, but He made disciples of small groups.

The laser beam focus of Jesus’ entire ministry was the training and launching of a core group of disciples with the commission to change the world. In other words, disciples are best made in the relational landscape of intimate community.

We are committed to developing a culture of discipleship in which the commission of Christ to His Bride will be a reality; that is, the training and releasing of maturing disciples who will in turn make more disciples in obedience to the will and command of Christ.

 

Types of Small Groups 

  • THE WORSHIP ASSEMBLY – This might be viewed as parallel to the crowds of Jesus’ ministry.
  • Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) – These are midsized groups that are more initmate than the worship assembly, and often engage in service to one another in times of need. This might considered the parallel of the 72 that Jesus trained and sent out in pairs (Luke 10:1-24).
  • Ministry Teams – These are small groups that organize around a task or cause with the desire to serve others in the name of Christ.
  • Truth Project Groups – These are short-term connection groups that utilize the teaching of the “Truth Project” as a means of establishing or recovering a biblical worldview; seeing and interpreting life through the lens of Scripture. A “Truth Project” group is a critical starting point for all new believers.
  • Sunday School – These are age graded, mid-sized groups for children with focus on biblical instruction.
  • Connection 2:42 – Small groups (8-15) that meet mainly in homes for biblical instruction, fellowship, mutual accountability, and support in an effort to grow in the grace and image of Christ. These groups may possibly be viewed as parallel to the 12 disciples.
  • Cords of 3 – Intimate small groups (normally 3 persons) that develop deep and lasting friendship based on biblical truth and trust. Accountability is a key component of this type of group.
